Sister of Travis Alexander sobs as she hears a hung jury verdict in Jodi Arias sentencing trial in PhoenixBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - The trials of convicted murderer Jodi Arias in Arizona will end up costing taxpayers more than $3.2 million to cover defense and prosecution expenses during the closely watched proceedings, county officials said on Friday.

Officials had declined to release any cost estimates in the case until the penalty phase retrial was complete. "Even this defendant under our law, under our Constitution, is entitled to a defense," County Attorney Bill Montgomery told reporters after the judge announced on Thursday that the second jury had failed to reach consensus on Arias' sentence.
